Minn. State Patrol reports hundreds of accidents

Posted:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- The State Patrol is reporting hundreds of crashes and spinouts as a mix of freezing rain, sleet and snow make travel difficult across much of southern Minnesota.

Lieutenant Eric Roeske says 367 crashes were reported between noon and 8:30 p.m. Sunday, with 48 injuries, though none serious. He says another 299 vehicles went off the roads or spun out, and three semis jack-knifed.

The Minnesota Department of Transportation recommended no travel across a large part of southeastern Minnesota, including portions of Interstates 35 and 90. MnDOT also reported difficult driving conditions throughout the Twin Cities and along I-94 and I-35 west and north of the metro area.
